Richmond Scholars Program

Richmond Scholars Program

Richmond Scholars receive the University’s most prestigious academic merit award, equal to full tuition plus room and board. Scholars are defined by academic achievement, engaged leadership, strong sense of purpose, and investment in a diverse and inclusive campus community.

The goals of the Richmond Scholars program are to bring engaged, high-achieving students to campus and to retain those students through strong mentorship and programming. The program values learning as part of a small, multi-disciplinary community and aims to assist future leaders as they begin to define and polish their personal and professional goals.
